This week ft. Cole Williams Band
Once again reality proves stranger then fiction in Louisiana. This past week has been full of quotables, such as Dr. Larry Hollier when he described a grim meeting in Baton Rouge, where State University administrators proposed education cutbacks due to the expiration of Federal stimulus funds as ³wonderful for motivation and team building². Based on uncertainties on the exact budget for the next fiscal year, we are looking at a decrease of 20% to 30% in State Funding at the University level. The encouragement ensues with LSU System Chancellor John Lombardi, "This is gruesome, this is painful- this is extraordinarily serious²
Gulf Seafood Tested for Oil, not Oil-Eating Chemical Dispersants
Sniffing sardines aside, we have to assume that The Powers That Be have been doing some serious checking up on the seafood being brought out of the Gulf. But so far nobody has been doing anything about the highly unknown chemicals used to attack the spill. I say unknown but of course they are known, to the people who invented them. The recipe used most extensively in the Gulf, the optimistically named Corexit, is kept secret under strict trade laws.
What's Up, Doc?
Coming soon to New Orleans, NYC comedienne and femme fatale, Jessica Delfino teams up with photographer, Alex M. Smith, to document the oil spill disaster and relief effort. This project was conceived with the notion that if you want to do something and you feel you can’t, well actually you can.
Big Oozy Hero
This man speaks (and sings) for us all! Must Watch!
Before Betsy, we had a white christmas; the next white christmas gave us Katrina. We had no snow this yule, but the World Meteorological Organization has given us something worse... the fifth major storm to fly over our oil filled gulf will be named "Earl." Get those generators ready, and keep your eye on the cones.
Reduce & ReUse

Good God! Goodyear!
According to the latest press release from the intimidating sounding, "Deepwater Response External Affairs" (Give em your shield and your gun!,) the Navy has dispatched an airship to aid in surveillance of the gulf. That's right, a blimp! A zeppelin is going to save us. (Well, they are good for staying aloft longer.) Insert Hindenburg joke here:_________.
Waritorium, Obamatorium, Snoratorium?
So, feeling a little confused by the moratorium? Is the halt good? Bad? Is the halt even in place right now? Did Jindal file the suit? Yeah, we're with you! That's why NoDef was so pleased to read Daily Kingfish's explanation of the affair. Not only does he explain the facts, but he also shows the powers & politics at play behind the rhetoric. A Must Read!!
NEWSBREAK: Breathing Oil Kills Whales, Other Marine Life
by Arielle Schecter
The news from the Big Oozy is grimmer today as the AP reports sightings of whale sharks (you know, those giant swimmy things) cruising through and between oil slicks in the Gulf. Whale sharks catch food by diving down nearly a mile below sea level, but first they have to take a deep breath at the ocean surface. As it turns out, "Taking mouthfuls of thick oil is not conducive to them surviving," according to Eric Hoffmayer of the University of Southern Mississippi's Gulf Coast Research Lab. "These animals do not know to stay away from the oil." Stupid whale sharks!
"B"est "P"ractices Continue
By Kat Stromquist
As the Big Oozy's tentacles probe their way into our coastlines and hearts, BP keeps undermining our long-held belief that “any publicity is good publicity.” The reputation carnage continues this morning with an AP report on the company's shoddy deployment of volunteer forces. The report nails the company for slow processing of assistance offers, failure to train volunteers, and takes a break from shooting the proverbial (oily) fish in a barrel to knock the White House response to international aid. On a more uplifting (har har) spill note, 70 more pelicans were airlifted to Georgia for rescue from the disaster.
